Face

Facial sculpting is the reshaping of the face

With ageing, changes to the shape and contour of the face occur and the tone, texture and quality of the skin reduce. At Sculpted, we start to tackle the early signs of ageing with non-invasive treatments and skin care products. When heavy ageing with skin wrinkling, sagging and volume depletion in areas of the face occur non-surgical modalities may no longer suffice and it may be time to consider surgical options.

Often the best results here are achieved by combining surgical procedures with non-surgical treatments such as laser resurfacing, injectables (Anti-wrinkle injections and Dermal Fillers) and skin care products to improve skin quality texture and remove signs of ageing sun damage. The procedures offered below may be utilised alone or combined as necessary for your desired result.

How does face sculpting work?

Face sculpting is like renovating a house. If the structure is in reasonable condition, one can rejuvenate it with minor external non-surgical treatments. But, if the structure has given way it may need more involved surgical work for the desired result.

At your first consultation, Dr Sawhney will assess your facial features from hairline to the base of your neck. He will systematically explain any irregularities or problems present at each level and how we can help. He will ascertain your immediate and long-term goals before forming a short and long-term plan for you. This may mean non-surgical management with injectables at the outset or even minor procedures.

If you are looking for more now, or potentially in the future, Dr Sawhney will produce a maintenance plan for you to optimise your facial features at each stage.

On the other hand, should you require significant procedures at the outset – these can be organised. Once structural work is done with surgical procedures, the house may be ready, but the exterior may still need painting. This is where non-surgical treatments such as laser resurfacing and skin care products may improve the texture and quality of the skin to finish the job. Often maintenance with non-surgical treatments after a facelift for instance will help to keep the good result for longer as you continue to fight the ageing process.

How does Dr Sawhney decide what procedures I need?

Vectra 3D aesthetic simulation allows us to show simulations of potential changes that can be achieved with various surgical and non-surgical procedures. This innovative technology is primarily used for breast sculpting. However, it is also very useful in non-surgical rejuvenation of the face with fillers. It can even give estimates of volumes of filler required in each area to achieve the simulated results.

The rhinoplasty (nose job) tool is extremely useful and allows far better visual communication between surgeon and patient. Patients need to remain mindful that these are simulations and the results may differ somewhat. It does however provide a significant visual aid that can help you and your clinician decide on what procedure, non-surgical or surgical is best for you and how far to go with a particular treatment.

LIP LIFT SURGERY GOLD COAST

Lip lift surgery involves a slight reduction in the height of the philtrum

The skin between the upper lip and nostrils is called the philtrum. Through slightly reducing its height, the upper lip is flipped out – without being left with the ‘duck pout’ appearance that fillers can sometimes leave patients with. Lip lift surgery involves a small incision in the fold under the nose and is able to be performed under local anaesthetic.

What is the procedure?

The procedure involves an incision under the nose (discreetly where the nostrils meet the upper lip). A small section of skin is then removed from this area. The procedure results in a smaller distance between the nose and lip (philtrum), ultimately enhancing the cupids bow, and assisting the top lip in rolling outwards more, making it appear larger.

Who benefits from a lip lift surgery?

Lip lift surgery is most appropriate for both men and women who have teeth that can appear hidden by a lengthened or sagging upper lip area – or also known as an ‘elongated philtrum’.

Benefits of lip lift surgery

Improved smile and more harmonious facial proportion between the upper lip and nose.
Can help to reduce a ‘bottom teeth’ prominent smile if the reason is an elongated philtrum.
If the skin below your nostrils has started to sag or has a wrinkled appearance, reduction of the philtrum may help to reduce the ageing appearance of that area of the face.

What is the recovery like?

One of the most important parts of your lip lift journey is a healthy recovery. Dr Raja Sawhney will ensure that you are always as comfortable as possible and ensure that your recovery process is as smooth as possible. Your body’s natural response to the surgery will result in minor bruising and swelling in the area, but you may begin to see results within three to four days.

For convenience, dissolvable sutures will be used during the procedure, meaning that the patient will not have to return to the clinic to get the stitches removed. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled, this will ensure that the patient is healing properly and that you and the surgeon are both satisfied with the results.

Rest and care will help with the process of recovering as quickly as possible. It is recommended that the patient undertakes a temporary diet of soft foods, and a restriction on strenuous physical activity. This will help to avoid irritation and minimise potential scarring.
